How do others used Confluence with Jira

We have Jira and Confluence installed and they are working well.

We have the basic integration setup where issues can point to confluence documents and confluence documents can show issues in jira.

However we dont have any real good ideas for organizing and using these together.

We are thinking issue tracking system (Jira) and then confluence to support the Jira set of projects, issues in terms of documentation, process documentation, additional info.

Currently we have a main page and several other pages that describe out environments, applications, development/coding standards and other misc documents. There is a little organization there but its very minimal.

How are others using Confluence with Jira? I would love to hear back.

  • you might have a spece per your JIRA project and publish release notes there
  • user docs, test docs, pretty much any kind of docs can live in Confluence
  • JIRA macros will display filter results in CONF for CCB's or triage meetings
  • just a few ideas => you can do a lot more

Thanks. That is helpful. We have created a Jira project that really handles sprints so there a multiple applications handled in the sprint.

This means we dont have a Project = application relationship its more of a project=working group relationship.

I guess we could still have a confluence area to group this projects documentation, notes, etc.

If you create a Confluence Space per each JIRA project you can organize the information, link issues and also Create a Project Dashboard, that will bring information from JIRA without the need of going into JIRA. That functionality could help for management and meetings and with the development of project documentation, etc.

Thanks. I would love to see others continue to describe how they are using confluence to support their issue tracking (development, testing, release) efforts.
